No Power Tab On USB Root Hub In Device Manager

When I would check out 'USB Root Hub' in Device Manager, there would be a 'Power' tab that would list the name of the connected device and how much power it was drawing. Somehow, that particular tab has 'gone the way of the dodo,' and does not appear. Currently, the only tabs I see are General, Driver, Details and Power Management.

USB 2.0 Device - No High Speed USB Hub Found
I have installed a Belkin USB 2.0 PCI card in my box (pc only had 1.1 on the board). I have an external WD hard drive that is USB 2.0. When I plug the hard drive into the USB 2.0 port I get a dialog box that says "No High speed USB hub found.... HI-SPEED USB Device Plugged into non-HI-SPEED USB Hub." When I look at my devices, I do not see any USB device that specifies USB 2.0, only the 1.1 device that is built in and the new card whci says "OPTi 82C861 PCI to USB Open Host Controller".

I have unistalled ALL USB devices and reinstalled, and still the same. I am running XP Pro , with SP2. The device manager shows no errors and reports that all devices are working properly. I have checked with Dell and there is no new Bios for my pc (Dimension 4300). Everything I have read said XP should support this card without any additional drivers.

Usb Hub Had A Power Shortage Disabled
My usb hub had a power shortage and was disabled. I clicked on the details button and it said that USB #8 was disabled and that I should unplug whatever is plugged into it and reset it.Well I don't know which port is number 8 but I unplugged one of the ports that I THOUGHT it might be and pushed reset. Everything else that's got a USB plug seems to be working.I also noticed last week that the USB ports in back of my computer at the very bottom have stopped working so I switched certain peripherals to be using my front ports. (digital camera)What could be causing my USB ports to malfunction like this?

Reports USB Hub Error, But No Hub Attached
Today I've been receiving a Windows error warning of a power surge on the USB hub. This warning continues to pop up (and block document windows) even after removing all USB devices. If I click on the error, I get a dialog box reporting that one USB device is drawing too much power through the hub, and it lists 5 USB ports with one highlighted as the problem device. It instructs me to remove the device and click the Reset button.I have three problems with this error. First, from the dialog box there's little way for me to determine which physical USB port is the problem, so I have to unplug all devices. Second, doing as instructed (disconnecting the devices and clicking Reset) doesn't clear up the problem, as I immediately get another warning.

Uninstalling USB Controllers From Device Manager
I tried uninstalling the USB controllers from the Device manager restarting my computer, and waiting for the pc to re-install the devices itself. Unfortunatly, nothing happens. It DOES find the devices, it DOES reinstall everything, but when i plug in even the mouse, i get the same error msg. The usb ports are named "Unknown Devices" and when i check their properties, the have no drivers installed.

USB Controllers Disppeared From Device Manager
The Data Transfer status on my HDDs was PIO mode and I wanted to make it DMA so that my access speeds become faster. All I did was update my Primary IDE Drivers. They got updated and DMA mode was enabled. But during this I dont know what happened, but my device manager no longer displays Universal Serial Bus Controllers. The entire thread has disappeared (it doesent show up even when I do "Show hidden devices").

Does Not Recognize USB Hard Drive - Device Manager As Installed
I've been using an USB enclosure successfully for some time with no problem. I upgraded to a Maxtor 100 gig in the same enclosure. When turned on it does the "plug and play" chimes and it shows up in the device manager as installed and working properly. But it is not shown in My Computer as a drive letter.

Dell dual core, 1 gig RAM, Windows XP service pack 2

USB Wont Show In Device Manager After Fresh Install Of OS?
Over clocked my system a bit too much, and ended up having to reformat. It's now a new install of Win 2000 Pro. But for some reason I don't have my USB. It doesn't show in device manager or Everest. Have done a system file check, loaded the newest Via chipset drivers, anything else I could think of, including show hidden files in device manager. Did a file search and the USB .inf file is there. But no controller. Everything worked fine before the reformat.

No Devices In Device Manager? USB And Sound Don't Work?
I had to reinstall windows XP because my OS would not load and I got all the drivers reinstalled, diagnostic ran smooth and everything came up working ok etc but my device manager won't recognize anything! The compy says my audio mixers are not there, my USB devices are not working, hardware wizard is not responding, microsoft updates are not working, Dell's driver downloads are calling out for something that isn't there and I really need this fixed ASAP so I can get to my external HD.

Power Surge On Hub Port
I have a Dell Optiplex GX240 running Windows XP Pro, Pentium 4,512MB of Ram,40G hard drive and an external 200GBHDD. A 250W power supply. The unit has 3 built-in USB 1.1 ports and I added a USB 2.0 PCI Card for the external. I presently have an USB hub port hooked up to one of the USB 1.1 ports, which leaves the other 2 free. On the USB hub port I have an old HPScanjet 3300 scanner, an Intel Webcam and my Sony Cybershot camera. On the USB 2.0 PCI Card I have only my maxtor 200GB external. I am recently getting a balloon red x alert in my system tray that reads "Power surge on hub port" (A USB device has exceeded the power limits of its hub port)and what to do to solve the problem. When I click the message to solve the problem I see a question mark which I then highlight and hit reset.I follow the instructions to reset and it reappears.

I have been here a few times before mostly asking questions about memory etc. This time I have a different question I currently have two External USB HDD's sitting at 40GB each which I record shows and sports onto using my TV Tuner card. The only downside of this is that I have to unplug each one and put the other one in or vice versa everytime that I want to use them. Is there any way possible that I could plug both of these in at the same time? I had an idea that an AC powered USB HUB might do the trick?

USB Device Bad Behavior / No USB Device Icon In Tray
The system seems to be very stable at this point in time. I run Norton Utilities and other maintenance sw as well as have a firewall/pest remover/anti-virus. Behavior - most things work fine on the USB ports, either the hub or direct connects. One digital camera will only work when direct connected(not thru the hub). I have a scanner that will only work on a 2003 Compaq Presario, but not on the whitebox on any port. Also, I have had two devices that won't work at all. I have noticed that the USB mass storage device icon doesn't seem to be present now when I attach a flash drive. This is recent behavior and doesn't predate every USB problem.

Desktop Manager For Power Users Must Have Power Toys
Desktop Manager allows you to switch between multiple desktops creating more elbow room for those who like to stay organized while pushing the max thread limit.1. First grab XP PowerToys from Once installed right click then check: task bar > toolbars > Desktop ManagerYou may now view up to four new desktops. I prefer not to have "Shared Desktops" on as it reminds me more of linux (and is cleaner).Now you may hide the buttons etc. and use Windows key + 1-4 to switch between desktops and Windows key + v to preview.

Dell Monitor As Powered USB Hub - Remote Location Of PC
I recently installed three new Dell Optiplex, Ultra compact computers in a Doctors Office. To keep things streamlined and tamper proof, I located the PC's above the ceiling tiles and wall mounted the Dell 19" monitors. This installation method required me to utilize the USB ports in the monitor for the keyboard and mouse. The problem is that whenever the monitors are powered off for any length of time, the PC no longer recognizes the mouse and keyboard. A simple reboot fixes everything but due to the remote location of my PC's, a simple reboot requires a ladder and is quite annoying and time consuming in a hectic doctors office.

Task Manager / Device Manager Don't Run
A friend of mine has a 4 yr. old PC running XP Home with 128Mb of memory. He's had problems with programs aborting recently. I tried to run Device Manager to make sure there were no issues there. It briefly brought the screen up, then it went away. The same thing happened to Task Manager when I tried to see what was running and how much memory was being used. Anybody ever see this behavior before? I might try installing a memory cleaner pgm (ie. Memturbo), but I'm not sure I would even be able to get it to run. The hard drive amd memory seem to have no errors.

Yellow Exclamation Point On Pci Device In Device Manager
Running Windows XP on Emachines ET1161-07. Installed all drivers that I could find, since EMachines does not represent XP. Tried Realtek audio and HD audio, tried Intel, didn't work. Tried NVidia, as it has an NVidia motherboard. Spent too much time on this computer. Can anyone lend a hand? I know it's got something to do with Audio, as there's no audio device detected in Sounds, under Control Panel.Customer has to have computer today.
